Why We Like It

There's no better way to explore a city than with a friend who has roots there. One that will steer you off the beaten path when it's called for, and into the heart of the action when the time is right. Consider Wildsam that friend. Each guide provides an interesting, beautifully written and illustrated exploration of a city from the unique perspectives of people (past and present) that live in and love it. 

Which cities will you explore?


Wildsam guides shed light on the lesser known, the complex, the real things, through this series of American field guides. Through the guides, they document a place through its stories. The series explores via prose and personalities, mixing together historical anecdotes, local interviews, literary memoir and hand-drawn maps, all in service of a deep understanding of place. The guides also offer a highly curated list of recommendations, the kind of smart list a close friend might offer.
